Carers Cafes

8e88c24a4c7b2d2c7b25554b0501d6f7.JPG

The cafes are monthly drop-in sessions in community venues where you can meet new people and socialise with other carers

You can swap tips on caring, make new friends, and find out about other avenues of support. All carers are warmly encouraged to come, and you are also very welcome to bring the person you care for.

You can expect:

  • A warm friendly welcome
  • Stress relieving treatments - book in advance
  • Experienced staff on hand for support & information
  • Welfare and Benefit general advice
  • Refreshments
  • Transport – (only available for Biggleswade, Bedford and Houghton Regis Cafes) book in advance if you have transport difficulties
  • Arts & Crafts – when possible
  • Guest speakers
  • A children's area (please note, parents are responsible for their own children at all times)

The Cafes run in 6 different locations throughout Bedfordshire.

As of January 2017 we have introduced a small charge for our treatments:

  • Hairdressing - £5
  • Chiropody - £10
  • Massage (15 mins) - £5
  • Massage (30 mins) - £10

Remember you can use our NHS Carers Grants (if you qualify) towards courses of treatments as well.
